    Insight Guide - Germany

    The book is hot off the presses and I have been waiting for it. I love it! One of the main reasons I wanted it was because your preview of the new book said it would be full of color pictures -- and it has great pictures on nearly every page! It also provides some interesting history to go along with the places, which makes them come alive. We lived in Germany for 2 years and have been back to Europe several times, so I wanted a great picture book, but I could not find a good one. This one is excellent -- I am even ordering another one to give to a friend who has a son who was just sent over there in the service. This is not one of the typical fact-after-fact books with a few pictures in the middle of the book and a map at the end. It's a very interesting, easy-to-read, informative book that I would highly recommend to anyone who just wants to know more about the country, but especially to anyone planning to visit Germany -- and take it with you! It's not expensive and I bet it will be worth its weight in gold when you are over there trying to decide where to visit. (It would even be great for kids in school studying this country in geography class.) Now I would like to have one of these books for Switzerland, France, Italy and some other countries. We have taken lots of pictures over there ourselves, but this book offers different views and covers places we haven't visited yet. I give it a big thumbs-up!

    Very useful for trip planning

    While I have, at the moment, no specific plans to visit Germany, I would definitely make use of this book if and when I decide to go. I have discovered the use of other Insight guides, and while I usually have not needed the whole book, I have certainly used parts of them. And since a rather well known travel writer has said it is fine to take parts of books along on a trip, that is what I have done with other Insight guides and will do with this one.

    While I would prefer more information about some of the places I plan to visit, Insight guides give more information than some other illustrated publications. And I believe they cover more sight/site seeing possibiilities than some other big name books.

    While I have not been very specific about Germany Insight, I feel it goes right along with the more general comments I have made above. At the moment I am using it and another book or two to help identify some pictures I took on a trip in 2000.
